What impressed you positively?

"The new hospital was very nice. I also liked their anatomy lab and their library. Students were very nice and the staff was very helpful and answered all my questions. Interviews were much easier than I expected, they just want to get to know you, not very many surprising questions, the doctor that interviewed me what very encouraging and it was nice to be interviewed by a medical student. I also like how the curriculum is organized into blocks instead of having separate courses. Makes much more sense. " Report Response

"There was a presentation by the financial aid office on the morning, and then the associate dean for admissions talked to us for a while (he was very encouraging). After the presentations, we had lunch with the medical students and then a medical student gave us a tour of the university. Great tour; got a feel of the university and what it would be like to study there. After the tour I had my first interview for 30 min and my second interview for another 30min and that's it.
